Gramma’s G-R-A-M-M-A-R

Grrrr! I keep receiving emails asking me questions about “grammer”. Grrr! Wouldn’t you think that word would be spelled “right”? Wait-a-minute...maybe it is. Spelling changes with the times. Your dictionary may show the word “grammar” comes from gramere (Middle English), gramaire (Old French) and even from gramma and grammat, meaning “letters”. Is it any wonder we wonder about our wonder-ful language?
